‘We absolutely reject its content and message’: Obama and Clinton featured in paid advert broadcasting on Pakistani TV condemning anti-Islam film
- State Department paid $70,000 to run adverts in Pakistan featuring President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton
- Ad now running on seven Pakistani networks
Obama and Clinton say they respect all religion and condemn actions and do not support things that are offensive to religion and their beliefs…
In the ad, Obama is seen talking about America’s tradition of religious tolerance and Clinton is seen saying that the U.S. government had nothing to do with the video that contains vulgar depiction of the Prophet Muhammad.
Really the government respects all religions? The government is tolerant and the government would never do or condone anything offensive to religious groups? Really?
How about the original $15,000 spent by the government to AWARD a photo of a Christian crucifix submerged in urine and over the years it is estimated that at least $100,000.00 has been spent by the NEA on exhibit of this so called art. Oh and I just heard that some museum in NYC is going to put this crap back on exhibit soon – so I’m sure Obama will apologize to the Christians for this attack on their religion right? I wouldn’t hold my breath or my water…
But wait there’s more we have this gem of hypocrisy from the New York Times…
The New York Times editorial of October 2, 1999, defends the display of Andres Serrano’s Piss Christ and Chris Ofili’s The Holy Virgin Mary:
A museum is obliged to challenge the public as well as to placate it, or else the museum becomes a chamber of attractive ghosts, an institution completely disconnected from art in our time.
The New York Times editorial of September 12, 2012, condemns the display of The Innocence of Muslims:
Whoever made the film did true damage to the interests of the United States and its core principle of respecting all faiths.
Whatever happened to “challenging the public”? Or is that obligation rendered non-obligatory when a certain public responds to challenges by killing people?
Here is the Holy Virgin Mary – the work employs mixed media, including oil paint, glitter, and polyester resin, and also elephant dung and collaged pornographic images. The central Black Madonna is surrounded by many collaged images that resemble butterflies at first sight, but on closer inspection are photographs of female genitalia. Que the Elton John… labia are free to fly, fly away… fly away bye-bye…
Anyway… I’m sure Hillery Clinton and Obama will retroactively denounce this work that was funded by the liberals in the US Government … I could go on with several other examples of offensive works funded via grants by the US Government through NEA but way bother, you get the point.
They are pandering hypocrites unworthy of the offices they hold and we need to be rid of them.
- $14,000,000,000,000.00 in the hole… and congress just spends and spends.
- Social Security spends $700,000.00 to relieve stress…whaaa??
- Obama to spend $1,800,000,000,000.00 we don’t have.
